Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone else had his programme taking over search engine, impossible to remove without shutting down just about every function on the computer.

    I downloaded ispell (as directed by this site) and got Babylon, without asking for it removing my home page and becoming my new search engine????

    A look at the about us does not fill one with confidence.

    yes i got a bit of it meself . It took over all of the search engine functions so i killed is by going to search : the finding Babylon and killing most of it from there . I have not managed to kill the small search window on my top tool bar though , as fast as i deleted it , it came back . So i tend to live with it , crap cleaner did int remove it either .

    cheers deacon jnr.

    ha! cleaned 100 bugs but said stump and buy if you want the other 1,500 fixed. So i deleted it . it was a registry cleaner and there should be a Babylon cleaner out on the interweb , i shall look for it .
  4. I would say you got the wrong version. There is a totally free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, you can get it here, its a very good malware tool.

    Spybot Search & Destroy is another very good, free, program.

    Also, have a look here for some possibly useful info on removal of Babylon.
